Selma-Dallas County Retirees Education Association wraps up meeting session

The Selma-Dallas County Retirees Education Association recently had their final meeting of the year last month.

Group members took an Education/ Cultural Trip and visited several historic sites in the Blackbelt Region: Gees Bend Quilting Collection, The Old Shoe Shop Museum, Black Belt Treasures. The Seniors also enjoyed a Ferry ride and had dinner at Miss Kitty’s Restaurant.

Selma-Dallas County Retirees President Jeanie Ward said it was another productive year for the group.

“We had a great year, it was challenged by life, but the good way outweighed the bad,” Ward said.

The Selma/Dallas County Education Retirees Association is just one of 75 local units of the Alabama Education Retirees Association, Inc. (AERA), which represents over 23,000 retired educators.

“Even in our retirement years, retired educators continue to touch the lives of those around us by volunteering in the community,” Ward said.
